The terror attack on a Kenyan shopping centre that has left 68 dead was allegedly being led by the white English widow of a 7/7 London terror attack bomber.
Soldiers said a white woman wearing a veil was shouting orders to gunmen in Arabic during the bloody massacre inside the Westgate shopping mall.
Al Shabaab said last night on Twitter that Samantha Lewthwaite, the ‘white widow’ of London 7/7 bomber Jermaine Lindsay, was ‘in their ranks.’.
As well as boasting Lewthwaite was with them, Al Shabaab claimed two British men from London, Liban Adam, 23, and Ahmed Nasir Shirdoon, 24, were among the ‘holy warriors’ in the attack.
Writing on Twitter, the terrorists said: ‘Sherafiyah lewthwaite aka samantha is a brave lady! We are happier to have her in our ranks!’ Sherafiyah is the Muslim name now used by Lewthwaite. Another tweet read: ‘our mujahideen are prepared to die for our cause!’
